Day 17: Congratulations to Don

Congratulations to Don for completing the MDLM Rapid Chess Improvement Program. What a great accomplishment ! It is the chess equivalent to training and completing a Marathon. A half a year spent chasing a worthy goal.

I also want to thank you for starting the Knights. I bought the MDLM book 4 or 5 months ago, read the beginning chapters a few time and had decided to start it. While googling chess tactics and pgn, I came across the Knights Site and with in a matter of moments decided this is a group I wanted to join. If fact when I sent my email to join up, I had originally thought you were De La Maza. You gracefully told me you were not.

I wonder if in a years time we will see 30 Knights listed in the group with a number of us listed as retired Knights. I hope so. Thanks to you and Sancho for keeping keeping on!

    30 Knights? When they keep breeding at this pace it will be difficult to post enough so that you will not be overflowed by your sidebar.
